Cordele-- Snacking has earned some South Georgia high schools new computers. Crisp County High School had two brand new Gateway computers delivered to them by Frito-Lay and Wal-Mart employees.

For every bag of Frito-Lay products sold in Wal-Mart, the two companies donated money for school computers. Crisp High has three large computer labs, but with state budget cuts, new computers are needed.

"With the state budget cuts all programs are subjected to cut backs, with technology being one that we hope will not be cut back drastically because there is an emphasis on technology with our students as a part of overall student achievement," said Principal Michael Overstreet.

Lee and Tift County high schools will also receive new computers.
